Catching Up on Contra Krugman

Contra Krugman, Shameless Self-Promotion 3 Comments

I realized *I* hadn’t listened to some of these, so let’s make sure I didn’t miss anything:

==> In Ep. 161 we tackle a question from a listener, on how to unwind the Fed’s balance sheet.

==> In Ep. 162 we’re live from the Contra Cruise, handling tough questions for libertarians (roads, kids, military defense).

==> In Ep. 163 we have Scott Horton on to discuss Trump and Saudi Arabia.

    Regarding Ep. 162 LIVE FROM THE CONTRA CRUISE: Hard Questions for Libertarians:

    In the comments for the Episode page, a commenter called “LP” mentioned that the Netherlands guy you talked about, he having reduced traffic accidents by *removing* street lights (and making roundabouts), that his name was Hans Monderman.

    Just wanted to link to the playlist for his set of videos that you mentioned:

    On 161, it’s always seemed pretty obvious that the effect of paying interest to the banks was a sweet deal for the banks and that ultimately they would stop lending to customers. I always thought it was some kind of weird Keynesian economics but it makes so much more sense if it is deliberate.

    Unfortunately, though, it makes zero sense – to me, at least – how the Fed would consider this to be responsibly performing its job.
